The Indigenous Sciences Symposium, part of the Sydney Science Festival 2016, brings together Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics, theorists, researchers, designers, engineers, educators and students from across the community. It provides an important opportunity to shape future research and investigations that are focused on exploring and sharing the sophistication, richness and leadership of Australia’s First Peoples within the scientific domain. The program will feature a range of key-note and panel presentations. A final plenary session will work to establish a series of recommendations around knowledge protocols and actions to advance partnerships, information sharing, research and development. This event is presented by the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences Indigenous Programming in partnership with Indigilab.
